Subject: Singing Western Ain't That Bad
Producer Jerry Thomas took over from the old guard at PRC and with the backing of Pathe Industries produced Eddie Dean & Lash LaRue westerns for a couple of years and he brought improved quality to all of them and when that company morphed into Eagle-Lion Pictures in 1948 he also produced four Red Ryder Westerns with Jim Bannon in Cinecolor through 1949. His touch makes the difference here.

Eddie Dean has a bland personna as a singing marshall, but he gets the job done.

Roscoe Ates was his sidekick in the Eddie Dean series and he had had a long career in films and later television as a light, stuttering comedian and he's better than you might think.

In this film, for buffs, it's a character actors feast. Doug Fowley, I. Stan Jolley, Lee Roberts, and many many more make this a better picture than it really is.(Pros at work!)

The songs and the music are well recorded, but not
necessarily part of the story. Eddie Dean could sing for sure.

I have seen this in A DVD-HD version and it's a much improved picture from this, but for MPEG-4 the picture quality isn't too bad. The sound is superior and the theme music is pretty good too.

It's your typical Saturday matinee western. If you're a buff you probably know it well, if not give it a look-see. There's a lot worse out there.
